Good pest and disease resistance
Mizuna can suffer issues with Flea beetles, Whitefly and aphids. To combat these issues it is recommended you grow Mizuna under a horticultural fleece. Mizuna can also experience issues with slugs and snails. For slugs and snails, it is important to keep the area around the plant debris free and as dry as possible, especially at night as slugs and snails love damp conditions. You can use barriers such as egg shells or copper wire to surround the plant to prevent slugs and snails reaching the leaves.MORE
Water the plants regularly to keep the ground constantly moist. If you are unsure, feel the soil with your hand. If it feels dry up to a fingernail deep then you can give the plant a watering. During winter the cold weather and rain should be enough to keep the plant watered most of the time. MORE
Full Sun to Partial Shade
Mizuna will like a sunny spot where it receives around 3-4 hours of direct sunlight everyday. However, it will prefer a spot where it receives partial shade during the the peak of the mid-day sun as it does not particularly enjoy very hot temperatures.MORE
Any fertile, well-draining soil
Will grow well in a mix of three parts compost and one part topsoil. MORE
